In April 2005, a quirky new restaurant opened in Sydney, Australia. The twist? At The Dark Side of Hyde Park, diners eat in total darkness. The Australian restaurant is not the first to explore dining in the dark. But at the Blind Cow Restaurant in Zurich, guests eat in total darkness; the restaurant’s wait staff is blind or visually handicapped.
A short train ride away, the Conti Bistro in Munich, located on Max-Josef-Strasse, has occasional dark evenings.
You can also dine in the dark in the City of Lights. Dans le Noir has a “surprise menu.�? If you want to eat there, the restaurant’s Website advises, reserve at least three days in advance.
